APL #106 – Positive Outdoor Space

Home Renovation & Addition in Centennial, CO - Architectural design & structural engineering by King Engineering

Make all the outdoor spaces which surround and lie between your buildings positive.  Give each one some degree of enclosure; surround each space with wings of buildings, trees, hedges, fences, arcades, and trellised walks, until it becomes an entity with a positive quality and does not spill out indefinitely around corners.
